Event description
Over the next 2 months we are going on an exciting journey to discover what joy feels,sounds and looks like with black communities in the UK

About this event

Black communities have been particularly affected in our health, lives and livelihoods as a consequence of COVID-19.

Supported by the National Lottery Community Fund, Rooted by Design are creating spaces of joy, connection and social imagination with Black Communities.

Join us on the 29th of July via Zoom from 6PM

We believe that joy is a fundamental human right that has the power to sustain, recharge and connect us to a more abundant and hopeful future.

The Joy without limits digital experience is inviting audiences on an exciting journey of discovery and sharing together in Black Joy. Speakers, performers and facilitators will use their talents and knowledge to make joy tangible today and in our everyday lives.

Black Joy is as rich as it broad so to start our journey of discovery we have selected 5 themes from our research that will delve into and give us grounding.

Joy in nature; How our relationship to our environments speak to us and create spaces for joy to be seen outside of ourselves.

Joy in sound and movement; Exploring how collective sounds, rhythms and vibrations move us and highlight their importance to heal, restore and gather.

Joy in generations; How Joy has changed and transformed but also acted as a link to bond us together across time.

Joy in Connection to self and others; Joy is an experience that we can feel by ourselves but also that joy is that bridge to collective experiences small and euphoric.

Joy in food; There's probably no sweeter joy than that of food and the way these can sustain our communities for the future and what it has done throughout the ages .

Rooted by Design is a Black led organisation centring the experiences, needs and futures of UK Black communities. We are reimagining abundant futures with Black communities by designing the services, solutions and change to get us there.

This is the start of a beautiful journey and we look forward to connecting with you to help make these futures happen.
